Press conference by Cecilia Malmström, on strengthening the EU's response to radicalisation and violent extremism

221 views

On 15 January 2014, Cecilia Malmström, Member of the EC in charge of Home Affairs, held a press conference on strengthening the EU's response to radicalisation and violent extremism, and on the Communication adopted by the EC to that end. The Communication identifies ten areas in which Member States and the EU are called to reinforce their actions to prevent all types of extremism that leads to violence, regardless of who inspires it. Proposed measures include the creation of a European knowledge hub on violent extremism, the development of training for frontline practitioners and financial support for projects making use of modern communication tools and social media to counter terrorist propaganda. Member States are also asked to establish programmes making it easier for members of extremist groups to abandon violence and the underlying ideology. The ten recommendations are the result of two years of work in the Radicalisation Awareness Network (RAN).
